Slaton, TX – Crash On Us Highway 84 Results In Injuries
Slaton, TX (August 9, 2019) – On August 9, around 11:49 a.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a major multi-vehicle collision on US Highway 84.
Reports from the scene indicate that a car suffered a flat tire while traveling down the roadway. The driver of the vehicle pulled over to the side of the road. Two men, who were passing through the area, stopped along the road to help the driver place a spare tire on the vehicle.
After the spare tire was placed onto the vehicle, the driver pulled their vehicle into the right lane at a slower rate of speed. A vehicle then came behind the car and crashed into the rear-end.
The impact of the collision forced the vehicle off the roadway where it came to rest on its roof.
Four people involved in the collision sustained injuries and were transported to area hospitals via EMS.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time.
